D)7.A pitcher of orange juice is 2/3 full. If four students equally share the juice, what fraction of the full pitcher does each student get?

PART 2
Fraction x Fraction

How I solved it:
Multiply 1 by 2 and you will get 2 (numerator)
Multiply 5 by 7 and it's 35 (denominator)
the answer is 2/35 (try to convert it as small as possible)

Mixed Number x Fraction

Step 1: Multiply the whole number by 6 and it equals 6..... Then add the 5 to the 6 and you will get 11...
so its 11/6

Step 2:
Multiply 11/6 with 3/10 and you will get 33/60.

Step 3: Simplify it....
divide it by 3

Mixed Number x Mixed Number

How I got it:

Step 1: Multiply 5 by 12 and then add 2 so you will get 62/12
Step 2: Multiply 4 by 23 and add 6 and you will get 92/23
Step 3: multiply 62/12 by 92/23 and you will get 5704/276
Step 4: Then divide it.... 276 will go to 5704 20 times and there will be 184 remaining. So its (20) 184/276
Step 5: Simplify
I simplified it by 4 and i got (20) 46/69

So the answer is (20) 46/69
